Kubernetes

The Kubernetes container orchestration system was originally developed by Google for automated development, scaling and management of application containers. It simplifies container management and provides features for availability, scaling and networking.

Kubernetes is based on over 10 years of experience running containerised workloads at a very large scale. After its open source release in 2015, the project quickly gained a very large and active user and developer community. Kubernetes became one of the biggest success stories in open source history. Today, it is the clear market leader in container orchestration.

The power of Kubernetes

Run your applications anywhere

You can run Kubernetes on any infrastructure, in any cloud you want. Take advantage of on-premises, private, public or hybrid cloud infrastructure. Kubernetes provides you complete flexibility and eliminates infrastructure and vendor lock-in.

Scale your applications on the fly

Kubernetes enables you to scale up and down seamlessly. Develop and test locally, and deploy globally within minutes. You can easily scale your containerised applications to any size, complexity or demand.

Battle tested

Kubernetes is based on over 10 years of experience in running containerised workloads at Google. Its design is built on the operational experience of the engineers who helped build and maintain the largest container platform in the world, resulting in a battle tested tool with a very mature and proven underlying architecture.

Amazing community support and ongoing development

After its first release, Kubernetes soon gained a very large active community and the support of many large enterprises and IT market leaders. With almost 2000 contributers, new features are continuously being released, providing solutions for any user need.

Market leader

Kubernetes’ broad adoption, growth, support and popularity stands out among all other container orchestration solutions and made Kubernetes the de facto standard for container orchestration.

Seamless, reliable workflow

The consistency of the Kubernetes platform greatly simplifies and speeds up the release of new software features. Push your code from your laptop to production, and find your software running perfectly, without hiccups.

Killer features

Kubernetes has amazing features that make it truly indispensable when deploying containers. It offers health-checks and enables self-healing with auto-placement, auto-restart, auto-replication, auto-scaling, offers rolling updates and rollbacks, and much more.
